e-learning governance by Mohamed Amin Embi

  1. 1. e-Learning Governance in Malaysian HigherEducation Institutions<br />By:<br />Prof. Dr. Mohamed Amin Embi<br />
  2. 2. Key Findings of e-Learning Governance<br />Only five HEIs (19.2%) did not have a specific centre/department/unit to manage e-Learning in their respective institutions. <br />In general, e-Learning governance is put under the purview of the Information Technology Centre (61.5%) followed by the Academic Development Centre (38.5%) and the Center for Teaching and Learning (34.5%) of the respective institutions. <br />Only seven HEIs (26.9%) have an e-Learning Centre which serve as a formal governance structure for the planning and implementation of e-Learning. e-Learning governance in two HEIs is the responsibility of the faculties, while in one, it is the responsibility of the e-Learning committee. <br />
  3. 3. In nearly half of the HEIs (42.5%) surveyed, the e-Learning coordinator is reponsible for managing e-Learning, while in 23.1% of the HEIs, the Director of the Information Technology Centre bears the responsibility of managing e-Learning. <br />A majority of the HEIs (80.8%) has an e-Learning committee. <br />Generally, only half of the HEIs (57.7%) in Malaysia provide an annual management budget specifically for e-Learning. <br />The main components of the budget were allocated for training and authoring software purchases (93.3%), followed by the acquisition of equipment and provision of physical infrastructure (66.7%). The benchmarking and the consultancy components were allocated the least amount of funds. <br />
  4. 4. In terms of the effectiveness of the existing e-Learning governance, only half of the e-Learning administrators (50%) believe that their institutions have an effective governance structure. <br />In addition, only half of the e-Learning administrators (57.7%) are of the view that they have adequate facilities for the effective implementation of e-Learning in their respective institutions. <br />Most of the e-Learning administrators (65.4%) believe that the representatives from the faculty/school/department have successfully played an effective role in enhancing the use of e-Learning in their respective institutions. <br />
  5. 5. The main challenges related to the e-Learning governance is shortage of staff (84.5%) and lack of incentives provided by the HEIs to those responsible for implementing e-Learning (69.2%). Other challenges include the lack of a clear e-Learning policy (61.5%), lack of a clear e-Learning governance structure (50%), and no clear guidelines as to who is responsible for implementing e-Learning (42.3%). Only three HEIs (11.5%) felt that the main challenge is the lack of support from the top management of their respective institutions. <br />
  6. 6. Number/Percentage of HEIs with a centre/division/department/unit dedicated to theimplementation of e-Learning <br />
  7. 7. Centre/Division/Department/Unit in charge of e-Learning<br />
